I think I’m obsessive-compulsive.
Not like the guy who washes his hands hundreds of times a day, or like Adrian Monk — the TV detective that suffers from all sorts of phobias and anxieties and has these oddball little quirks — kind of obsessive.
But a little.
I’ve been thinking lately about how to stay relevant in our booming and ever-changing web industry. I’ve been watching successful relative newcomers like MySpace, Digg, YouTube, del.icio.us, Last.fm, Flickr, Newsvine and Twitter to get a sense of what they are/aren’t doing. I’m trying to understand what they have (to attribute their success to), and do not have (to attribute their lack of _blockbuster_ success to), and what are all of these companies doing that are better or worse than the behemoths like Apple, Google, Yahoo, AOL, and others?
Nine months ago I simply stopped blogging. I’m not really sure why, although I suspect I just needed a break from writing for a while so I could take some time to gather my thoughts. I’d been blogging since early 2003, and I simply didn’t have anything else to say.
